From a Times Square building in late 1999, Foxy Kidd
started publishing Goodie Magazine to celebrate authenticity and originality
in whatever manifestation those qualities appear. A small,
handmade publication dedicated to preserving an endangered history
through the stories of its subjects, it was produced entirely
on money it earned for itself. With the help of generous donations
from readers, Panther Books began in 2001. A natural accompaniment
to the magazine, Panther was initially created to publish works
by Goodie Magazine subjects.
While new issues and books are no longer being published as of 2014, back issues of Goodie and back stock of Panther Books are still available through the Shop.
This web site is a collaborative effort on the parts
of Pussycat and Bark,
who gave their time and talent from the start, designer and
artist Michele Burgevin and producer and hostess Kris Britt of silente.
Micaela Porta and Erin Kalagassy aka Bunny are greatly appreciated
for their invaluable voluntary editorial assistance. Thanks!
